Malaysian hospital tops list of world’s best hospitals for medical tourists

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Prince Court2Malaysia’s Prince Court Medical Center is again named the hospital that best provides medical tourists with outstanding care beyond standard clinical protocols and excellent medical treatment in the annual ranking by the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA) 

 “Prince Court is already known as an outstanding medical facility,” says Julie Munro, MTQUA president. “This award recognizes that it also pays the utmost attention to key non-clinical aspects of care that influence good outcomes and a successful medical travel journey for medical tourists.” 

MTQUA believes medical tourists are not ordinary patients, and require care beyond standard clinical protocols. Communication, cultural expectations, social practices, ethics, and post-discharge care coordination are some of the factors that affect good care for traveling international patients. 

“It’s almost impossible for medical tourists to know how to find a good hospital that will truly provide the treatment and care they are traveling to get. We hope consumers and doctors will pay more attention to non-clinical factors that can significantly impact clinical outcomes and not just ask about hotels and airport pickups,” says Munro. 

Dr Chong Su-Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Prince Court Medical Centre said the hospital was honoured to receive such prestigious recognition two years consecutively. This award marks a significant milestone in the hospital’s journey of sustainable growth. 

“We are thrilled to be recognised by MQTUA again as a hospital that provides our patient an outstanding care beyond standard clinical protocols as well as excellent medical treatment. This recognition is a tribute to all our doctors, nurses and staff that had transformed this hospital into a place of healing, caring and hope and we will continue to strive to deliver the high quality patient care, whilst focusing on patient safety. We have a duty of care to all patients, wherever they are from.”

Dr Chong added, “Prince Court Medical Centre believes that Health industry has entered a new era where it is no longer enough to provide the highest standard of clinical care alone. Patients now are expecting a more holistic experience for the services they invest in.”

(1) Prince Court Medical Center, Malaysia
